Wales, Pontrobert near Mieford.
An elderly couple from mid-Wales are keen to have access to their lovely garden with a view over the surrounding hills above Pontrobert near Mieford
The brief was to create a non-slip maintenance-free garden,
with a patio and access to a raised pond suitable for fish.
The couple both in their late 70s expressed there wish for no grass to reduce the workload. They required a place to sit which would catch the sun but also provide a place for shade on very hot days.
I was asked to design and build a raised pond with ample shelf on which to sit and admire the fish.
I encouraged the development of an original large border on the perimeter of the property to contain many species of shrubs with fruit and berries to attract birds and soften the hard landscaping.
